Wow! 3 weeks of stash reporting in one post. It's a doozy for sure. I don't even know if I'll be able to remember everything. It's a problem when you're too sick to sew, but not too sick to press a few buttons here and there. The internet makes it way too easy to buy fabric - even while incapacitated in bed.
Let's see what I can remember...
I bought a good bit of Jovial recently. I have a king-size quilt, lap size throw and wall hanging all planned out of this fabric line - so of course, it requires a good bit of yardage. Truthfully, I'm still waiting on the last bit of it to arrive in the mail, but here's what I bought so far...

I also bought .75 yards of this Countdown to Christmas stripe to use as the binding on my Starry Eyed quilt.

I had to pull out my calculator to figure this up, but it looks like 28.25 yards total came in the last 3 weeks. Boy, that really makes me wish I'd included all the fabric I gave away earlier this year in my stash report. Without it, it's highly unlikely I'll make it back into the black. Hmm, I wonder if it's too late to slip it in?
As for what I used, I finished several projects, but they were small and didn't account for a great deal of fabric. First, I finished the quilt Around the Block. I used 4 yards for the back and binding.

We recently put out a humming bird feeder because Mr. Quilting Bug likes to watch the little creatures. Of course, so do I! They're so tiny and amazing. Our cat Jack is fascinated by them as well and was waiting for one to come feed...
